4 huevos rancheros


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • ½ medium onion, finely chopped

  • ½ green bell pepper, finely chopped

  • ½ jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • nonstick cooking spray

  • 8 large eggs

  • 4 (6 inch) corn tortillas

  • chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat; stir in onion, bell pepper, and jalapeno pepper. Cook and stir until vegetables have softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add drained tomatoes, paprika, salt, cumin, and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Set salsa aside.

  2. Spray some cooking spray on both sides of a tortilla and place it in a 6-inch skillet (such as an IMUSA® egg pan) over medium-low heat. Cook until tortilla starts to brown, 3 to 4 minutes.

  3. Flip tortilla and carefully crack 2 eggs on top. Place 2 heaping teaspoons salsa between the eggs, cover pan, and reduce heat to low. Cook until eggs are set, 3 to 4 minutes; remove to a serving plate. Repeat with remaining tortillas, salsa, and eggs. Serve with chopped cilantro.
